EROICI MASSACRI. La giustificazione degli omicidi di massa sul fronte orientale nella Seconda guerra mondiale

Alberto Burgio


Heroic massacres. The justifi cation of mass murders on the Eastern Front during the Second World War

The paper focuses on the way how the consensus to “evil” in Nazi Germany was politically produced through a discursive codifi cation obsessively organized by the regime and aimed at constructing new moral codes, compatible with the ongoing crimes at the time. The author sustains that the attempt of producing a new morality compatible with the extermination and the criminal project not always could solve the problems of wounded conscience of those who were actively committing the crimes or were simply spectators, in Germany or on the Eastern Front.
